Re: West Marine no longer matching prices...
They mail me the catalog from West Marine, Defender and Jamestown Distributors. I must spend too much.
I fully agree that prices really need to be compared after shipping. I forgot to mention that I've also started shopping for some things on Amazon, where free ground shipping is easy to earn. Spend $25 or more on qualified stuff and no shipping cost. There is sales tax. I just bought a bunch of varnishing things that way.
In the end, I like Amazon more because of its one stop shopping across many disciplines and that they store my address and payment info, so one click and I'm done.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
